JAMES EDWARDS / THE MEMBER OF THE WEDDING (1952) by Van Pelt

JAMES EDWARDS / THE MEMBER OF THE WEDDING (1952) by Van Pelt [Hollywood]: Columbia Pictures, 1952. With promotional text in paper snipe on back, as well as stamp of photographer Van Pelt. Near fine.

Portrait of James Edwards as “Honey Brown” in this Carson McCullers adaptation, “a troubled young man happiest when away from the white world’s dictates and simply playing his horn. Edwards understands jazz musicians and how their art saves their lives. He understands restraints and repressions.” (Bogle, Blacks in American Films, p. 150).

Edwards, despite his manifest gifts, had only a marginal film career because Hollywood was not yet ready for him.
